You know what i would love you forever for if you made for me?

A Gryfindor hat scarf and glove set.

does any of that make any sense whatsoever? I can send an email for you too if you want me to to make it legit.

Gloves or mittens? Or fingerless gloves? Or fingerless gloves with mitten covers? I've never done legit gloves before, and it could be interesting to try, though...

As for the scarf, which style were you thinking? 3rd year or 1st year?

I don't really need the e-mail for something quite this iconic, haha. You can just answer any pertinent questions here (in relation to material or pattern preference, mostly).

whichever is easier for you to do. I don't think I'm really picky.

You're going to have to refresh my memory as to what they look like.

and as for material and pattern, whatever floats your boat.
I think I'll do mittens, if that's cool with you. I've got a pattern for those.

3rd year is the one with the small gold stripes, 1st year is the even stripes.

I'll probably go with acrylic yarn, and I'll get back to you soon for pricing.
You know what would be cool, but I don't know if you can do it, is make one side the 3rd year with the small gold stripes and the other side the 1st year with the even stripes. If you can't do that that's totally fine. i'll go with the 3rd year one then.

I love you bb <3
I could, theoretically. It would use a *lot* of yarn, but then, so would either pattern, really. I'll consider it.

I think it would be best to go with the 3rd year one, overall, as far as expense and simplicity are concerned. Do you want a particularly large scarf (about 2 inches wider, 20 inches longer--keep in mind that the small one is almost 5 feet long as it is)?

And for the mittens, thin stripes like the scarf, or even stripes?
And what size mittens? Do you have small, medium, or large hands?
lets keep the scarf short and the stripes on the gloves like the stripes on the scarf.
Haha, that works. You're looking at about $17, then.

And what size hands have you got?
umm... how do you measure one's hand. They're not as big as some ppls' but i don't think they're exactly small either. :-|
I don't need exact measurements, just a general "small, medium, or large" assessment. Sounds like medium to me.
Hmmm, will contemplate this. Thanks.
Awesome! Take your time. =)
Ok, so I left you a comment on your blog. But I much prefer to correspond through lj, I quote:

I'm considering a pair of mittens. How's your pricing look for a pair of wool ones?
Machine-washable wool blend or 100% wool? And do you want it to be multiple colors (if so, I'll have to buy two different colors, unless you want a variegated yarn)? This is less dependent on cost, but also, what size hands do you have (or does the recipient have, if they're for a gift)?

Generally, though, pricing for a pair is around $5 for a single-color (or variegated) machine-wash wool blend, $8 for a single-color (or variegated) hand-wash wool or a dual-colored machine-wash wool blend, and $13 for a dual-colored hand-wash.

Gratuitous fine print: All price estimates are based on JoAnn.com yarn prices, and don't include shipping. Prices would vary slightly (give or take ~$1) depending on what yarn I would choose to go with.
Probably a blend because I'm lazy like that. Hahaha. And I would like a variegated wool. Preferably bright colours. I shall check out joann.com for colours when I get home. I've also got small hands.
Nothing wrong with being lazy when it comes to washing things, haha!

I've been looking at Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn, which is relatively cheap, although it doesn't have much in the way of variegated yarns.

Patons SWS has *lovely* colors, most very bright and self-striping, but they are about twice as expensive, and they're hand-wash. Same for Lion Brand Lion Wool yarn which looks lovely.

Debbie Mumm Traditions Yarn looks like it would be interesting to work with, but continues to have the same problem as the others.

I'm heading out to go shopping later today in a couple hours, and I may pick up something there, which will depend on what they have in stock in the store, too...failing that, however, I can always order it online if you fall in love with a particular colorway. =)
Oh no, go for it. Really, my only stipulation is no orange. Yellow, blue, green, red, pink, purple, whatever. But no orange. Not too heavy on the pink and purple though. Does that make sense?

I wouldn't mind the green on the left, or the blue on the right. Something like that.

And the prices work for you? It would likely be in the range of $7-8.

Ooo, those look awesome. I wish I could get those for you, haha, but they look handspun/dyed.
Oh, well, I just mean in that type of shade. I'm not into the too much pink/purple and no orange at all. Just giving you an idea of what to go for. Thanks! If you could do more of a blue and green, it would match my scarf. =) Price works for me. Will prob work out to around $10 Cnd. Shipping hopefully shouldn't be too bad for them.
Oh, no, I understood what you meant. But those are awesome in general, haha.

8 USD is apparently around 8.55 Canadian dollars. Shipping should be around $2 maybe, so you're probably right.

And I will definitely try to look for blue/green yarns!
Omg, now I'm just being picky. Not too much turquoise? Avoid it if you can. Alright, now I am done. $10 for a pair of mittens is fantastic. And if I can get something to match my scarf and that fits? So awesome. It's hard finding stuff when you've got small hands.
Can I have your e-mail address, just to let you know when they're done and ready to be shipped? And do you need these by any particular time? I'll try to get them to you as soon as possible, but do I have a specific deadline?
londonook@gmail.com.

No deadline, but... maybe before the end of the winter? So I'll get to wear them at least once this year. =)

How would you like to be paid? Let's also make sure of that before you do anything. I've got paypal.
I'm aiming for November. That'll give you, what, five months of use? ;P

Paypal for sure. On my blog, I stated, "Payment will be handled through Paypal."
Weird, I didn't get an email for this post. I don't remember asking this. Did you want me to pay now or later? It's up to you.
I was just going to contact you! I actually just finished them last night! I'm a bit concerned with how small they are, but I have fairly large hands with long fingers...nonetheless, I feel like I should check on that before I send them and everything. It's an odd request, but could you measure the length of your hand, from the start of the wrist to the tip of your middle finger? I just don't want to send them, only to have you need to send them back. =/

Ideally, I'd like you to pay when I ship them so that I have an accurate figure on the cost--I'm still not sure how much postage is going to be, though I can't imagine much. The yarn I got is a little pricier than I expected, so you're probably going to be looking at more like $12 (*with* shipping), but I hope that's not an issue.
6.5in from the base of my palm to the tip of my index finger. =)
Okay, it *should* be able to fit. It's exactly 6.5 inches, so it might be tight, but it *should* stretch.

I'll head down to the post office tomorrow to see about getting them shipped. =)
Oooh, k, thanks. =)
Status check?
